Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre is in no hurry to go home as he is not taking part in the upcoming UFC 206. St-Pierre was recently spotted having fun under the sun on a beach in Miami, Florida with a mystery girlfriend.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, St-Pierre and his still unknown girl were having fun sunbathing and enjoying the warm beach. Sources added that St-Pierre also brought a pair of boxing gloves but was not determined if the former champion used it for a short workout to impress his new girl.
St-Pierre tried to grab the headline after telling the media that he will make his comeback at UFC 206 against Anderson Silva. UFC president Dana White quickly shot down all rumors and stated that GSP is no near of fighting again inside the Octagon. White told the “Jay and Dan Show” that St-Pierre is not fighting in Toronto nor there has been a specific date for his much-awaited comeback.
“I don’t think he does (fight again). There’s a certain mentality you must have as a fighter, and Georges St-Pierre hasn’t had that mentality for a long time. And sometimes that’s not a bad thing. Listen, the guy went out on top. How many athletes really go out on top? Go out the way you want to go out? The guy made a lot of money and when you take – this isn’t a sport you take a three-year layoff from,” White said.
St-Pierre vacated his title in 2013 and it was not clear why the former champion just stated he wanted time for himself. Speculations roam that his father was terribly ill and that St-Pierre impregnated his girlfriend but would not want to carry the pregnancy. But others noted that St-Pierre might have burned out with fighting inside the Octagon and wanted a timeout.
Three years after hibernation, St-Pierre told the MMA world that he is ready to come back and reclaim his title. But White says that it won’t be that easy and fast, he stresses that he does not see the beast inside of St-Pierre that wants fights to happen.
Until the beast in St-Pierre comeback, the former champ will likely spend his days under the sun or somewhere enjoy the day with his mystery girlfriend.
